SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical plans to shut its 250,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE) unit in Shanghai for a turnaround from March to April, a company source said on Thursday.
“The maintenance will last for around one month, but the exact date is still not certain,” the source said.
Local distributors said the supply of HDPE film grade and HDPE pipe grade in the market may decrease as a result of the maintenance shutdown as Shanghai Petrochemical is one of the major producers in east China.
